Live for the Glory of God

Everyone goes through times in life when it is hard to see the path God has for him. When God is silent, Satan seems to intensify his lies and doubts. Knowing that you are unique and that God made you on purpose gives hope and drive for life. In days when you are struggling, remember to live your life purposefully for the Glory of God.

Tents and Altars

The Christian life is a journey of trusting God and obedience to His Word.  Regardless of where you are in life, you still are confronted with the questions “What is next? What will I do? Where will I go?”

The life of Abraham illustrates that each of us are on a “journey of a lifetime.” Abraham’s legacy is not only a life long journey, but it was a journey on purpose.

Today each of us are on a journey and we will choose a direction we will go. The Christian life is a journey of trusting God and obedience to His Word: Faith and Obedience.

Successful Service

For what do you want to be known? Paul says in 1Corinthians 1:10 “Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.”

It would be easy to set up our own criteria for success in ministry, but God has already told us what it will take to be successful.  The Corinthians looked at what they had rather than what they were, and thought that they were spiritual.

1 Corinthians is a book that challenges us to look inside rather than outside. It challenges us to look at what we are rather than what we have.

Successful Service.  Do your best because God will reward your actions and motives in the full light of absolute knowledge.

“O taste and see that the Lord is good, blessed is the man, woman or child who trusts in Him.” It is my joy to serve the Lord Jesus Christ and to lead others to join me in getting to know, love, and serve Him.  I have enjoyed helping equip His church for over 30 years. I trust that the sermons and devotional thoughts will encourage you to deepen your relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ as you explore these pages.

Great Is Thy Faithfulness

Music is a wonderful gift from God.  It allows us to express beyond words; it allows us to add emotions and feelings to those words.

Great is thy faithfulness!  What a wonderful truth that God is always faithful even when I am not.  His mercies are new every morning!  One of my joys has been to serve the Lord with my children.  This is a piano / trombone duet that my son Andrew and I were able to play together.
